A complex balance: mediating sustainable development in Cape York Peninsula

1 Jan 2003
Description

This paper examines 'sustainable development' in a contemporary remote Aboriginal rural community. The author argues that sustainability in Indigenous development in the central Cape York region involves an ongoing compromise between often incommensurable forms of social, political, and economic organisation. Drawing on material gathered in central Cape York Peninsula between 1996 and 2003, he concludes that development intervention is likely to fail when it is not properly cognisant of differences between Indigenous and non-Indigenous ideals and ways of doing things.
